The benefits of natural light are many, from improved mood and increased productivity, to stress reduction and better sleep. Natural light can also beautifully transform a home’s interiors while creating the perfect ambiance.
Of course, there are only so many hours of light available to us each day.
That’s where Aura™ Illuminated Shades come in.
With Aura Illuminated Shades, you can replicate the sun’s radiance, whenever you desire, extending the benefits of natural daylight on overcast days, after the sun sets and before it rises. Aura shades have built-in illumination, which is customizable. You can adjust the light levels from dim to bright and the light color temperatures from warm to cool.
Aura shades are perfect for adding a warm, relaxing glow on cloudy or rainy days, enhancing a mood with dim, magical light, or improving morning wake-ups with a soft radiance instead of a jarring alarm.
In addition to Aura Illuminated Shades, the Hunter Douglas collection includes many shade styles that can create captivating light, including the following favorites.
Imagine light so finely diffused that it transforms a harshly lit room into a warm, relaxing space that almost seems to embrace you. With Silhouette® Window Shadings, soft fabric vanes suspended between front and back sheer panels can tilt to any degree, so you can set the mood in the room just how you prefer. Heightening the senses and sparking a feeling of indulgence, beautifully diffused light is the ideal objective in a quest for contentment.
Refracting through threads of luxurious tactile fabrics, light performs a mesmerizing dance. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades elevate the traditional Roman shade with an advanced design and inspired textures and colors that deliver an elegant modernity to a room. Soft folds provide a uniform, contoured appearance and a refined aesthetic that charms the light to create even more beautiful décor.
When natural light is softened to create a calming glow, mood is instantly lifted. Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades produce this aura of light with two layers of fabric featuring subtle curves. Such dimensional beauty, especially with fabrics in gorgeous earth tones and neutral hues, offers a contemporary look at the window and pairs wonderfully with draperies.
Paintings and objet d’art housed in the world’s top museums have a rare capability to conjure certain moods. With its sculptural, shapely design, Pirouette® Window Shadings are hypnotizing, captivating light through soft fabric vanes affixed to a sheer backing that bloom as they open and close. Their movement and appearance create a magical sense of wonder usually found only in hallowed gallery halls.
Light’s influence is inescapable, no matter the size of a window or room. Guiding light from the floor to the tallest corners of the ceiling, Luminette® Privacy Sheers create extraordinary illumination that awakens our perception of space. An ethereal combination of vertical fabric vanes and a sheer panel, Luminette sheers work perfectly on sliding doors and taller glass windows.
To fully feel a sense of comfort, indoor temperature must be controlled to your preference. The superior insulating honeycomb design found in Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades traps air to impart a consistent feeling of ease throughout the room, while endless fabric and color options allow for a truly custom shade that beautifully filters light. With the Duette LightLock™ system, comfort arrives by way of unparalleled darkness—perfect for bedrooms or theater rooms you want to keep cool and dark.
Effortless, convenient control of your window treatments lets you set the mood you desire as light evolves from bright morning rays to a soft evening glow. With PowerView® Automation, schedule your shades to move automatically, whenever you prefer. You can even program them to adjust based on the sun’s movements for enhanced energy savings. This is sophisticated, smart living.
